Redundant Currency Symbol Menace Spreads To Canada

Redundant Currency Symbol Menace Spreads To Canada

We’re sorry, Canada. We share a dominant language and many aspects of our culture, but we didn’t mean to export the horror of redundant currency symbols. That’s the grammar abomination where someone uses both the symbol and word for a currency in the same sentence: for example, “$15 dollars.” After our rant on the subject earlier this week, reader Daniel pointed out its appearance in a current Pizza Hut promo in Canada.

Some Poor Guy Has To Stand Outside Pizza Hut HQ “Protecting” This Royal Baby Tie-In Offer

Sign-twirlers and flyer-distributors in sandwich boards are often viewed as occupying the lowest rung of the advertising ladder. But those guys have nothing on the poor sucker who has to stand outside Pizza Hut HQ in 97 degree weather dressed in faux royal guard garb — all to “protect” some royal baby cash-in promo. [More]

Pizza Hut Tapes Note To Box Begging For Perfect Survey Scores

Filling out customer service surveys is scary. If some managers are to be believed, giving any score but an 11 out of 10 is effectively stealing food out of the mouths of employees’ families. Getting impossibly perfect stores is so important for some stores that they’ve resorted to bribing customers with coupons or freebies. That’s the case with Jared’s local Pizza Hut, which taped a note begging for perfect scores to his pizza box. [More]

Pizza Hut Managers: Worker Ogling Porn On Laptop Wasn’t On The Clock, So Who Cares?

What you do in your personal time is totally your own business — collect toy ponies, worship at a Bill Pullman shrine, whatever floats your boat — but even if you’re not on the clock, you probably shouldn’t indulge in your favorite porn peccadilloes at your place of employment. Pizza Hut customers in Virginia are hot under the collar after claiming they caught a worker ogling naked ladies on his laptop at the eatery. [More]

Pizza Hut Delivers Too-Small Pizza Missing 4 Toppings, Shrugs

WC ordered a large and very delicious pizza from Pizza Hut. It was a huge Panormous pizza with four toppings. The pizza arrived with one of the toppings, no mozzarella cheese, and in a much smaller size. Well, no problem: a case like that means that he’ll get a refund, a free replacement pizza, or maybe even both. Right? [More]

Pizza Hut Gives Gift Cards To First 100 People To Tweet Photos Of Their Lame Christmas Presents

From ill-fitting ugly sweaters to that 50 States Coin Collecting Starter Kit, there are almost limitless options for what can count as a “lame” Christmas gift. The one thing they all have in common is you don’t want’em, and they’re a waste of space. But how about pizza? Do you want some pizza, would that ease the sting of disappointment? Pizza Hut thinks so, and is offering people gift cards to lessen the dissatisfaction that can occur in recipients of awful gifts. [More]

This 2-Ring Circus With A Cherry On Top Is Actually A Pizza That People Can Eat

At what first glance appears to be one of those pre-made deli trays your office puts out when they force you to have a meeting through lunch (or your neighbors give you when your mother-in-law passes away), is actually a pizza. Or at least that’s what Pizza Hut Singapore alleges. [More]

In A World With Bacon Shaving Cream, We Are Unsurprised That Pizza Hut Perfume Exists

At first I was like, “Eww, Pizza Hut perfume?!?!? What is this world coming to?” and then I remembered that there’s some bacon shaving cream makings its way to me rightthisveryminute and I was like, “Oh, of course.” And it’s in Canada so it’s unlikely I’ll be able to splash a bit of that on to mingle with the bacon cream. Unlikely, but perhaps not impossible. I’m talking to you, Canadian readers. [More]

Pizza Deliverer: If You Live In A $650K House And Don’t Tip, There’s Something Wrong With You

Tipping waiters at a restaurant is relatively easy — so long as you know how to calculate the standard 15-20% — but tipping for delivery is always a topic of much debate, as there are factors involved like the cost of the meal, the weather, how long you had to wait, and how much was being carried.

Pizza Hut Realizes That Offering People Money To Ask Presidential Candidates About Favorite Pizza Topping Is Remarkably Stupid Idea

At this week’s town hall-style Presidential debate, at least one of the questions asked by an audience member will be superfluous and about a topic many people deem unimportant. Luckily, no one will be taking Pizza Hut up on its request to ask the candidates whether they prefer pepperoni or sausage, after the restaurant chain realized that might be just a remarkably dumb idea.

Give Me A Large Hawaiian Stuffed Crust With Anchovies and Cockroaches

The best thing that one can say about this story — in which a pizza gourmand found a cockroach cooked into the cheese of his Pizza Hut pizza pie — is that Pizza Hut found the topping completely unacceptable. Domino’s, on the other hand, would have simply initiated a marketing push to define the topping as the unique ingredient of a new California style pizza.
